This week was filled much with lots of drama in the TV world. Some people are headed to the unemployment line. These shows were cancelled.
The USA Network has cancelled the freshman comedy Benched. The shows story line channeled a once highly successful lawyer, who unfortunately was demoted to a public defender. I never watched it so I will not miss it.
Rumors have been stewing about the cancellation of TV One’s R&B Divas Atlanta. The producers of the show have not yet cinfirmed this, they have stated that they are waiting on a decision from the network. They also stated that R&B Divas LA will premiere in February. If this show is cancelled I will not miss it, the story lines are reaching very far to keep our interest. Now I will say that Angie Stone should have her own show, after being publicly humiliated on the reunion show TV One owes her one to set the record straight.
FOX cancelled their new medical drama Red Band Society. Many viewers said the show was just depressing. The show was fulled from the air in November and that was the beginning of the end. There are still 3 unaired episode that need to be aired. For those of you who loved this drama you can watch the unaired episodes on FOX on January 31.
Before VH1’s Sorority Sisters aired there was outrage about this production being created. Mona Scott was in talks to create the reality show. However we hear that the production was taken over by another production company. Everything Mona touches lately seems like it turns to s*it. As I reported before this show was going to be nothing but a mess.
The Greek organizations community was outraged at the thought of such a show being created, then when the trailer was released and all hell broke loose. Petitions were started to get the show shut down, then when the show aired many sorority and fraternity brothers and sisters took their outrage to the doors of VH1’s headquaters and had a peaceful protest. The people have spoken and VH1 is finally listening. Sorority Sisters has been CANCELLED,YAY!!!!!!!!!!
Many were outraged when there were reports of VH1 and Mona Scott teaming together again to produce yet another show. Sadly the once highly respected music exec has turned into the Grinch who stole the black communities dignity. The Black Greek Organizations got together to protest the show. Loud chants and fellow Greek members picketing their signs in front of the VH1 office in NYC. #SAYNOTOMONASCOTT #VH1YOUKNOWBETTER #RESPECTOURSISTERS. Sadly VH1 does not plan on cancelling the show. Sorority Sisters ratings are doing very well, over 1.3 million people took the time to watch this mess and only 76,000 people signed a petition to shut the show down. The Black Greeks Organizations concerns have not fallen on deaf ears, because the NBA has decided to pull all of the Sorority Sisters advertisements from their rotation.
VH1 released a statement
There are currently no plans to change the series and it seems to be connecting with its audience….Due to the confidential nature of our agreements with our advertising partners, we never speak to specifics about clients and their media plans…But we do enjoy successful, long-term partnerships with our advertisers and are happy to honor any requests to move spots to other parts of our schedule.
DAMN, DAMN DAMN! Were my thoughts when I heard that VH1 wanted to create a reality show about the sorority sister lifestyle, I was pretty sure that this was not going to be a good for the highly respected sororities involved. Sadly there is always a dummy who is willing to get in front of the camera and make a fool out of themselves and bringing down a whole organization with them. Let’s give the producers a round of applause, because they are extremely good at what they do. TV Producer are good at finding the weakest links and getting them to create drama. The producers were able to pluck out some chickens to appear on this show. Sororities usually scream sisterhood, unity and empowerment. Sadly in the trailer you see none of those things. In the trailer all you see is a bunch of ratchet mess. How dare you VH1?
If you want to see this mess it premieres on December 15th.
Lil Wynes current girlfriend Christina Millian wants the world to know she is just some rappers eye candy, she wants us to know she has talent. The former singer is looking to grab the mic after all these years and revive her music career. Christina was engaged to the hit making producer the Dream and had a beautiful baby girl. Motherhood takes a toll on your life and Christina wanted to take time to be with her bundle of joy. Now that the relationship between Christina and the Dream is over, she want to get back in the studio and claim her position in pop music . Can she do it? We will have to wait and see in 2015.
Sadly I have to announce that our beloved Miss Sharon has passed away from a stoke. I hope Todd and his family find a way to cope and keep Miss Sharon’s memory alive. I really hope that my fellow bloggers don’t take Miss Sharon’s untimely death and pollute it with the drama that Mama Jones had with Miss Sharon. Now is not the time and it’s not cute. My condolences Todd.
Love and Hip Hop NY returns to Vh1 on Monday , December 15, 2014. Look at the trailer. Looks like the same old stuff to me.
Since the passing of our beloved Joan Rivers, the hit show Fashion Police has been off of the air. Going on without Joan just didn’t seem right. There were rumors that the show was probably going to cancel, but as Joan would say The F**king Show Must Go On. Well E! has decided to keep the successful show in production, but with some restrictions. The show will no longer air weekly, it will only air for award shows and other special occasions. Comedian Kathy Griffin will sit in Joan Rivers chair according to TMZ. Kathy is just as outspoken as Joan Rivers was, but can she pull this off?
What do you think?
